About the FireRescue1 Academy

We believe a well-trained fire department is a safer, more effective fire department. That’s why we’ve created the industry’s most comprehensive yet user-friendly online video training system. Our platform features more than 500 short-format and 30 training-block courses with quizzes, plus tracking of self-paced training. Launched in January 2011, the FireRescue1 Academy addresses the gap between fire rescue department budgets and the need to provide ongoing high quality training to rescue personnel.

Our cutting-edge technology and rich online media experience cost-effectively addresses training needs and compliance requirements. The FireRescue1 Academy delivers continuing education that assists all levels of fire rescue in better serving their communities.

“The Training Academy has allowed me to select subject specific videos and supplement material to support scheduled training topics. When developing lesson plans it is very easy to add this material to the drill. The training material is perfect for providing some cognitive learning objectives prior to participating in the practical application.” Marc Doty

Assistant Fire Chief, City of Sycamore Fire Department
